Lawrence, Mass., July 1. A narrow
wooden walk leading over 15 feet of
water to the municipal bathhouse In
the Merrimac river yesterday gave
way under the stamping feet of a
crowd of impatient boys and at least
12 of the little fellows were drowned.
There may be more bodies in the
The boys, ranging from 9 to 15 years,
were waiting for William B. Wythe,
the bathhouse keeper, to open the
door. No one knew how many there
were in the party, hut it is thought
that 40 is a conservative estimate.
The boys were jumping up and ddwn
as they shouted to Blytho to open
up when the supports sank and the
walk extension dropped like a trap
door, rolling the lads into the river.
There is a swift current at this point
drawn by the falls a quarter of a mile
below and the youngsters were caught
in this. Many of them could not swim.
It was thought at first that only
three were drowned and it was not
until hours later that the probable
loss of life was realised. A boy in
the crowd of distracted persons on
shore, missing his chum, set up a

river, three miles east of Elkhart.
Tho bodies were discovered about 5
o clock yesterday afternoon by Clar
ence and Hugh Eaterday, young sons
of George Eaterday, on whose farm
the girls had come to pick cherries.
The girls had been missed shortly
after the noon hour, but Eaterday
thought they had quit and left for
home because of the heat. The boys
discovered tlieir clothing on the bank
and hiaw the bodies of two floating
on the water. Divers recovered tfhe
other two bodies. The girls were
noted as expert swimmers, and had
made the trip from their home to the
Eaterday place in a canoe.
